Description (last modified by scottmc)

2 files one in vision App folder cause installer failure on nightly builds. Has been a sporadic problem on and off for several months. Solution,remove vision from nightly builds. I have been doing this with Magic Iso on windows to resolve the problem.

The files are

CPRIVMSG.txt RFC1459.txt

I have no idea why this is a problem, but it is. Removing the entire folder for vision from the image resolved the issue. I have also had issues with PE doing the same thing. I remove both from the ISO image, burn it and install after I put the new image on. Fix's the problem 100% of the time.

The installer error is a General system Error could not copy xxxxx.txt.

Looks like ScottMc moved this to optional packages, did anyone remove it from the nigthly images ? if so close this ticket I installed the build from last night from the .iso cd, went fine.

It's always been an optional package, all Scott did was update it so it's automatically built via haiku-ports. The reason for the copy failure is unclear to me though it might've been bad permissions on the files in the archive, but it's included on the nightlies along with a few other optional packages so the live CD images can be a bit more usable. If you're not seeing the issue any more, than chances are it was indeed just a permissions problem since otherwise those files aren't in any way special. Please confirm.

Could be a file permission issue. if so let me know and I can adjust the .bep file to set the affected files.
